Open Street Map

Open Free maps are Free editable maps. These are made with the help of GPS by anyone at anytime. These maps allows us to view,edit and use geographical data in the collaborative way from anywhere on the globe. Like in some areas, We have some buildings and street being built all the time and with the help of OSM we can always locate this location of sneakers on the ground and can get up-to-date data.
More important thing is that information is free. It will be owned by the community- not by any big corporate which means it can be accessed by anyone,anytime and anywhere and can also edit it accordingly. Open street map(OSM) maps are more accurate then anything else on the market in many parts of world depending upon awareness and participation of community. By using OSM we will come up with new applications and winning innovations around the information we recorded.
Maps prepared by OSM have already Started In US and is new in India. These maps

(a)Help to Grow the industrial business in the area of digital mapping and provided the scope of placements of the students in the same area.
(b)Help as track locater to the community such as Traffic Police,Cabs etc.
(c)Help as a navigator for the physically challenged people(Blind).

Department of civil engineering at GNDEC Ludhiana is going to prepare such maps. Initially we are starting from Gill Village and Our target is to Prepare maps of ludhiana city. All the data collected by this will be given away free for others to use.
For collecting the data of Gill Village our Students will carry GPS to different part of gill village and will record the information and then will upload and then this will be provided to the community for the use.
We can get further information regarding open street maps from below link

Worshop on FOSS in college Genesis

In 20,Nov 2009 our college genesis is begin so Linux User Group (LUG ) conduct two events
Workshop on FOSS & LINUX QUIZ . First off all our workshop is begin at 9.00am and Dr. H.S.Rai give Presentation on FOSS.

Introduction to FOSS:-
FOSS is an open source software that is being used n linux operating system . A seminar on FOSS was held ,that was presented by Dr. Hardeep Singh Rai. He was presenting many effective information on open source software and systems specially on foss. According to them with the help of these open source softwares and system we can developed a new system that is according to our requirements and needs. Through , the help of the open source softwares we can develop our country in many assepts of information technology.

There was a open discussion on FOSS . Dr.Hardeep Singh Rai and Ajay Shiv Sharma was the in discussion . They were presented their views about these concepts that how to use these open source systems and modify them according to our needs.
Also there was a questioner on foss and linux operating system. In this module there is question about open source system and the audience presented there was trying to answer these questions and also there was gift on behalf of these questions. We gain knowledge about these open source system a lot.

Then, after the seminar on foss ,a workshop on drupal will conducted . In this workshop we work on Drupal (open soure) .Our lecturer Ajay Shiv Sharma was giving a lecture on this that how we work on drupal. He also giving information about DRUPAL which is also an open source software and we make a wonderful website by using drupal. In this module we install Drupal in our machines with some commands that are related to it .We follow the instructions of our lecturer and install it in our machines.
Through drupal we develop websites which is very effective and it includes all the content that a website can have.
We can learn how to make websites through there systems.
There was group of some students that work according to the instructions of lecturer that can handle all this work .

How To Compile A Linux Kernel - on ubuntu?

First I prefer to do all the steps here as the root user. So if you haven't already created a root login, you should do so now:
#sudo passwd root

Afterwards, log in as root:

Then update :
#apt-get update

Then we install all needed packages like this:
#apt-get install kernel-package libncurses5-dev fakeroot wget bzip2

Download The Kernel Sources 

Next we download our desired kernel to /usr/src. Go to and select the kernel you want to install, e.g. linux- (you can find all 2.6 kernels here: Then you can download it to /usr/src like this:

#cd /usr/src

 Then we unpack the kernel sources:

#tar xjf linux-
#ln -s linux- linux
#cd /usr/src/linux

Configure The Kernel

It's a good idea to use the configuration of your current working kernel as a basis for your new kernel. Therefore we copy the existing configuration to /usr/src/linux:

#cp /boot/config-`uname -r` ./.config

Then we run
#make menuconfig

which brings up the kernel configuration menu. Go to Load an Alternate Configuration File and choose .config (which contains the configuration of your current working kernel) as the configuration file:

Then browse through the kernel configuration menu and make your choices. When you are finished and select Exit, answer the following question (Do you wish to save your new kernel configuration?) with Yes:

Build The Kernel

To build the kernel, execute these two commands:
#make-kpkg clean
#fakeroot make-kpkg --initrd --append-to-version=-custom kernel_image kernel_headers

Now be patient, the kernel compilation can take some hours, depending on your kernel configuration and your processor speed.

Install The New Kernel

After the successful kernel build, you can find two .deb packages in the /usr/src directory.
#cd /usr/src
#ls -l

On my test system they were called linux-image- (which contains the actual kernel) and linux-headers- (which contains files needed if you want to compile additional kernel modules later on). I install them like this:

#dpkg -i linux-image-
#dpkg -i linux-headers-

That's it. You can check /boot/grub/menu.lst now, you should find two stanzas for your new kernel there:
#vi /boot/grub/menu.lst
The stanzas that were added on my test system see on this file.

Now reboot the system:
#shutdown -r now

If everything goes well, it should come up with the new kernel. You can check if it's really using your new kernel by running
#uname -r

This should display something like
If the system doesn't start, restart it, and when you see this:

LDAP, Lightweight Directory Access Protocol, is an Internet protocol that email and other programs use to look up information from a server.
 LDAP is an application protocol for querying and modifying directory services running over TCP/IP.
A directory is a set of objects with attributes organized in a logical and hierarchical manner. A simple example is the telephone directory, which consists of a list of names (of either persons or organizations) organized alphabetically, with each name having an address and phone number associated with it.
